Michigan Wolverines guard Nik Stauskas earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors for the second straight week after brilliant performances against North Carolina State and Bradley.

Michigan Wolverines guard Nik Stauskas was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the second straight time after two dynamite performances this past week.

Stauskas, who was recently inserted into the starting lineup, averaged 21.0 points on 56 percent shooting in two Michigan wins. First, the star freshman scored 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting and 4-of-7 from three in a win over the North Carolina State Wolfpack in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge.

Michigan coach John Beilein rewarded Stauskas with his first career start on Saturday against the Bradley Braves, and the freshman responded with another huge performance. Stauskas scored 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting and 4-of-5 from three-point land to help lead the Wolverines to a 74-66 road victory over the Braves.

For the season, the 6'6 guard is averaging 14.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 27.7 minutes per game. Stauskas is shooting 57.7 percent from the field and a scorching 62.1 percent from long range.
